Vegan Podcast on Kickstarter

A Brooklyn-based vegan is raising funds on Kickstarter to start a podcast.

Erin Grayson, also known as Erin Red, is hoping to spread the vegan message via a podcast. Using crowd funding platform Kickstarter, Grayson—a vegan, muay Thai fighter and instructor, and contributor for Vegansaurus—is hoping to raise money to start a podcast. “My goals are to educate, entertain, and enforce. To wake people up. And have an unreasonably good time doing so,” says Grayson on her Kickstarter page. Numerous vegan projects have found success on Kickstarter, from ice cream shops and pop-up restaurants to food trucks and vegan cheese companies.
